“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” hits theaters next week and ahead of its release, Disney is issuing a seizure warning – especially to those with epilepsy and photosensitive people.

Flashing lights at certain intensities and certain patterns can trigger seizures in about 3% of people with epilepsy. Disney is recommending that theaters hang signs outside, advising of the warning.
